Glenn's getting a hybrid?


Is Glenn really thinking about giving up his super stretched Escalade and buying a hybrid?

GLENN:  It's the humane thing to do, drill right through his head to get the oil.  I mean, we had John McCain on Friday and he was like, I can't -- I would just as soon drill in the Grand Canyon as in the ANWR.  Really?  Do we have oil in the Grand Canyon?  Because I'm with you on that.  Oh, you were being sarcastic.  I'm not.  I mean, people just don't understand we can't live without oil.  Maybe we can in 50 years.  Maybe we can in 20 years.  Maybe we can in 10 but that's like me saying, Oh, you know what?  I'm not going to buy a new car.  My car breaks down.  It's on its last legs.  There's no way I'm going to make it home and every mechanic has said, boy, you're in real trouble, you don't replace this car.  Don't worry about it.  I'm going to poop out a hybrid around 2:00 this afternoon.  "You're going to what?"  "Yeah, I think I ate enough fiber and everything, I think I can poop out some sort of a hybrid today that I'm going to take home."  "Okay.  Well, until you actually do that, you might want to go to the GM dealer and get yourself another car."  "No, no, I'm going to just keep on working on pooping out this hybrid."  That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard!  When you actually poop it out and we drive it around for a while, we know that it works, that's great.  Until that time, we should probably go to the automakers and get one.  What do you say?  Who's with me on that one?  Oh, yeah, I'm just going to -- you know what we're going to do, alternative energy.  Mmm-hmmm.  When we have it, you let me know.  But everything we ever come up with, with alternative energy:  "Oh, no, but not that one.  That one's bad.  That one's bad."  Okay, I'm down to a campfire.  "But you have smoke in the air and you're burning the forest."  It's a campfire!  I don't have anything left!  "Yeah, mmm-hmmm, I know, but we're going to work on some alternative energy."  Oh, these people drive me crazy.

By the way, you know I'm doing this -- these commercials for GM and this is not a commercial.  I do these commercials for GM and every couple of weeks they give me another vehicle to drive, et cetera, et cetera.  I drove their Tahoe hybrid for the last three or four days.  That thing is fantastic.  I just bought a Denali and a Escalade.  I have two GM cars not because -- I never got a special deal or anything else.  I buy them from a friend of mine down in Florida and love them.  Love them both.  I am ready to sell both of them.  They're less than a year old each.  This Tahoe, it's a hybrid, gets 8 miles more per gallon, gets 22 miles per gallon.  It's fantastic.  It's electric V-8/V-4.  The thing has -- what are you looking at me like that, Stu?

STU:  So it runs as a V-4, a V-8 and a hybrid separately?

GLENN:  Yeah, at some point it runs as a -- it's wild to drive.  At some point it is an electric, at some point it's just a V-4 and then when you need it, it's a V-8.  The thing has guts to it.  I mean, I hate to -- I hate to discredit government mandates, you know, and all those people who are forcing us to, you know, "Well, you've got to..." I hate to discredit that by saying, hey, here's a vehicle that I actually like, works really well.  I like it more than the Escalade and the Denali and it's great on fuel economy.  That's great.

STU:  So when did you get the letter from the Government that you had to buy it?

GLENN:  I didn't.  I didn't, uh-huh.

STU:  No, but how else would you understand to buy a product?

GLENN:  I don't, I know.  And you know the thing I really like about it?  I don't know if it's just because this is a test, this is a loaner thing that the, you know, Detroit sends this out to me with like this -- I don't know.  Have you ever seen them with the big hybrid sticker on them?  The Denali is made -- I mean, the Tahoe and the Yukon I think are the same thing hybrid but I'm having -- right now I'm driving the Tahoe.

STU:  But have you seen them with the big huge hybrid on the side?  Beck)

STU:  Says hybrid in big letters?

GLENN:  It's got to be, what is that, six inches?  Got to be six inches all across the said, says hybrid and then across the back window it says hybrid.  You've never driven in New York City in an SUV until you've had somebody pound on a -- "You don't need..."  I'm not kidding you, pound on your hood, "You don't need a car this big."  I rolled down the windows.  "Yes, I do.  I've got dead bodies of liberals in the back.  I need them as big as they come.  Want to see it?"  Until you've driven, you know, and people are pounding on your hoods, you know, I'll just take the pavement -- I'm thinking about just putting hybrid on the side of the car.

STU:  That was the goal of our stickers, the hybrid -- what was it, hydro?

GLENN:  Hydrocarbon.

STU:  Hydrocarbon powered eco vehicle?

GLENN:  Hydrocarbon powered eco vehicle.  It's fantastic, absolutely fantastic.  But anyway, it's the new hybrid from GM, not a commercial.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
